Games developed: 25
Games published: 35
Period: 1987 - 2002

Without a doubt France's most famous game developer and publisher, and rightly so. Here's the company history taken from the official site:

"Infogrames Entertainment was founded in 1983 by Bruno Bonnell, Christophe Sapet and Thomas Schmider with the vision of becoming the premier provider of interactive entertainment software. This vision is built upon the belief that Infogrames will transport all of its customers into a new world of entertainment through the power of imagination, innovation and the energy of its people. Today, the company proudly ranks as one of the world's top ten publishers of interactive entertainment software with a catalogue of over 1,000 titles and a direct-sales and third-party distribution network covering over 57 countries.

Headquartered in Lyon, France, Infogrames is Europe's biggest and most successful entertainment software publisher. Infogrames has offices in dozens of countries around the world and over the past year has gained a presence in the North American market as well. Subsequent to the close of the fiscal year on June 30, 1999, the company completed a transaction to acquire a 70% equity interest in GT Interactive Software. As a consequence of this development Infogrames has established a major presence in the North American market place and transformed itself into a global leader. In the coming years, Infogrames will add the Japanese market to its growing global presence as it begins preparation to open a new office in Japan.

Infogrames currently develops and distributes award-winning computer and video games for PlayStation® game console, Nintendo® 64, Nintendo® Game Boy Color, Sega® Dreamcast™, and personal computer platforms. The company's 17-year history has produced many award-winning franchises, such as Test Drive®, Independence War™, Hardball®, V-Rally™, and Alone In The Dark™. With over 50 titles in development in the year 2000, Infogrames plans to create many exciting new franchises for the new millennium.

The company is also known for its long list of well-known licenses spanning cars, movies, cartoons, athletes, sports leagues, and more. Some of Infogrames' key licenses include Warner Brothers' Looney Tunes™, Mission Impossible™, Le Mans™, AM General's Hummer®, Harley Davidson™, and Dodge® Viper."
